NVIDIA has just announced its new entry-level GeForce MX150 GPU for notebooks - the new GeForce MX150 is based on NVIDIA's Pascal GPU architecture and is the successor to the GeForce 940MX.

Needless to say, the GeForce MX150 is a discrete GPU that aims to provide slightly more graphics performance than your standard integrated GPU. NVIDIA hasn't released official specifications of the GeForce MX150, but based on past releases, NVIDIA will likely allow OEMs to specify certain parameters like clockspeeds to meet their performance and TDP requirements.

NVIDIA has only confirmed that the GeForce MX150 will use GDDR5 memory and that users can expect performance that is around 33 percent better than the GeForce 940MX.

Against integrated GPUs from Intel, NVIDIA says the GeForce MX150 is around 350 percent faster than an Intel HD620 integrated GPU and 400 percent faster than the Intel HD520 integrated GPU.

Expect to see new notebooks equipped with the GeForce MX150 over the next few days as COMPUTEX 2017 gets underway.
